The Mostly Modern Festival (MMF) is a new summer festival that celebrates the music of our time. The focus of the festival is 'mostly modern': music by living composers from around the world, with an occasional foray into the past.
There will be four concerts a week from June 7-17, featuring world-class ensembles: Imani Winds, Euclid Quartet, Atlantic Brass Quintet, American Modern Orchestra, American Modern Choir, American Modern Ensemble, and more.
The festival takes place at Skidmore College, and all concerts are held at the Arthur Zankel Music Center.
The festival hosts the Mostly Modern Festival Institute, a two-week intensive for performers, conductors, and composers. Musicians who are accepted into this prestigious program will have access to private instruction and performances with the world's finest musicians. It encompasses more than 100 students, 30 faculty, orchestra, choir, chamber music, masterclasses, lectures, and more.
